Text message marketing is the next big thing in marketing. It's simple. It's inexpensive. It's fast. It's effective. We are living in a time where mobile phones are considered a necessity. Text or SMS messaging is the primary means of communication in younger generations. People are deleting hundreds of unopened emails on a daily basis but will read every single text almost as soon as it is delivered. Only 65% of all emails are actually opened and read. Only 48% of emails sent to a mobile device are read. But an SMS message will be acknowledged. In fact, over 99% of all text messages are read. With statistics like these, using text messaging as a marketing tool is an intelligent choice.
